It seems like a good portion of Hollywood gossip revolves around the Kardashian family and their changing appearance over the years. One member of the family who is always in the spotlight is Kim Kardashian thanks to her romances and the ongoing speculation regarding her backside. Let’s take a look at the latest news regarding the buttocks of Kim Kardashian and what many people feel is responsible for the size and shape of her butt.
In a recent Instagram post, Life & Style Magazine shared two photographs of Kim Kardashian. The two photos were placed side-by-side so readers of the magazine could easily compare them. The photos resulted in many celebrity watchers and Kim Kardashian fans thinking she might have undergone cosmetic surgery procedures to place injections in her butt or to place buttock implants in her backside.
The post was put online on October 6th and the comments about the post included a debate about whether or not any differences in the look of Kim K over the years were due to injections or butt implants. Some of the comments included:
Over the years, Kim Kardashian has denied gossip regarding the size and shape of her butt and any buttock augmentation surgery. She also denied claims from her fans who believe that Kim had butt implants placed in her booty. Having said that, Kim did admit to getting injections in her butt during a 2016 livestream video on her app. According to Kim, the only reason she had injections in her butt was to relieve symptoms she was experiencing due to psoriasis.
During the livestream video, Kim recalled her first appointment to treat the symptoms. “I went to get a cortisone shot in my butt. I lived right behind Kitson (a now-closed Los Angeles boutique located near Cedars-Sinai Hospital). One of my neighbors was a dermatologist at Cedars. I go in there and he’s like, ‘There’s a one in a billion chance that you will get a huge indent in your butt.’ Of course, I get a huge indent on my butt.”
Due to the dent in her booty, Kim feels that the ongoing gossip about her behind containing butt implants is the result of the appearance of the dent. “There is a picture of me in Miami wearing an electric blue dress, and another picture of me walking down Robertson [Boulevard]. You see the indent. And I think that’s when the rumors started: ‘She’s had implants.’”
Back in 2014, Kim also addressed the gossip on Twitter (now known as “X”) just months after she gave birth to her daughter. At the time, she wrote, “I’m seeing all these nonsense tabloids claiming I have butt implants-injections. Get a life! Using pics of me 15 pounds skinner (before I had my baby) comparing to me now! I still have weight to lose.”
Kim went on to add, “Anyone who has had a baby knows how hard it is to lose weight (especially the last bit of weight) & your body totally changes! Making fun of me pregnant & making fun of me trying to lose weight now – shame on you. I’m not perfect but I will never conform to your skinny standards sorry! Not me. And BTW I’ve lost a lot so far & I’m proud of that! Don’t give young girls a complex!”
There was one other instance where Kim Kardashian tried to end the butt implants speculation. During an episode of the Kardashian reality show back in 2011, Kim had her buttocks x-rayed in order to try and prove that her butt was natural in appearance and did not have any help in getting bigger and more contoured. Soon after the scene aired on television, Khloe Kardashian took to Twitter to say, “See, it’s REAL!!!”
Even with all of the time she has denied having buttock implants, there are still gossip magazines and websites who insist that Kim is not telling the truth. Many of her social media followers are also not convinced when Kim denies having butt implants. It seems like they will always be convinced that they are right, and Kim is trying to
hide the facts from them. It looks like Kim Kardashian is in a “no win” situation and that there will always be a portion of the public looking for evidence that she had implants placed in her buttocks.
